When planted directly in the soil and provided with optimal growing conditions, it can reach heights of over 2 meters. When grown in pots, it still thrives, though it may not be as prolific as it is when planted in the ground.
Use a good potting soil or seed starter soil. Use perlite to help with drainage and good root growth. Seed Starter soil generally has little or no nutrients so you will need to start adding feed to the soil once the seedling has shown its first set of leaves or earlier.
Once the seed has sprouted, the root will already be 1 inch or longer so keeping the top of the soil moist is not so important. Chilli Plants hate being overwatered. A sign of this is yellowing leaves. Chilli plants can cope much better with underwatering and will let you know when they need more water by the leaves drooping. Give the first inch of soil a chance to dry out before watering more. Water in the morning or evening when it’s cooler to avoid scorching leaves.
